zero-G Living Octave

Visual Reference Guides 


The “Living Octave” refers to the underlying rhythm of our physiological processes. And it is by being aware of and working with these fundamental rhythms in such a way as to bring about harmony that we are able to bring about our complete life experience.

These visual guides illustrate:

Figure 1: The modulation of our energy (arousal) state throughout the day

Figure 2: The fundamental elements and their sequence in our day.

Figure 3: An active illustration showing these elements in the “flow” of a typical day.

Interactive Reflection:  

Reflect on your typical day to see and feel the bigger picture of your daily rhythm, as you engage the activities of life, at the full range of intensities.

Refining awareness of your state (mental and physical), at any point during the day, enables you to take the actions that promote synchrony (harmony) of mind and body as it’s happening.

Remember… your life rhythm is uniquely your own.
